    Those are great, telling montages.

    The top one is Gehry’s building in Las Vegas, isn’t it? I’m gonna be there the next few days. If I have the time, I’ll make my way over there for some pics.

  2. Just visited the EMP museum in Seattle. Obnoxious, but goes nicely with the color blast from the Chihuly Museum next door. And I love that they made a tunnel for the Monorail. http://www.guerrillacandy.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/emp1.jpg The Dancing House in Prague is silly, too. http://www.achievement.org/achievers/geh0/large/geh0-030.jpg

  6. Once again, the Manolo makes reference to the greatest philosopher of the past 100 years…

    “Modern architecture knows how to erect industrial shacks, but it does not succeed in building either a palace or a temple. This century will leave behind only the tire-tracks of the transports it employed in the service of our most sordid greed.”
    ~ Don Colacho

    Another semi-relevant quote:

    “I don’t care if they want to build those boring glass boxes, but why do they always deposit that little turd in the plaza when they leave?”
